7 months

The 6 month appointment was a month late.  It's the story of my life lately, but here are the stats:
Height: 27 3/4 in (75%)
20 lb 1 oz (75%)
17 3/4 cm head (75%)

He is still such a happy baby, which atleast helps to offset the fact that he stopped sleeping through the night about 2 months ago.  What's up with that??  He started sitting up around 6 months, mostly because I made him practice all the time so that I could get some good Christmas pictures of him sitting in front of the tree.  He still doesn't have teeth, but that doesn't stop me from feeding him graham crackers because sometimes that's all I can do to keep him entertained so I can get dinner on the table.  He poops like crazy, like I'm jealous he has such an incredible metablolism, but I get tired of washing sheets and the carpet.  He laughs at random things like Maddox snorting or Kylie tap dancing.  He thinks the kids are way funnier than me or Jason, which they are.  He loves anything crinkly, the wipes package keeps him entertained every day while I shower.  He licks my lips when I kiss him and it makes me want to eat him up.  He stops everything and freezes whenever I tickle his back, and gives these random shudders that kill me. When he sucks in his bottom lip it makes me want to have 10 more babies (then that thought leaves as quickly as it came).  I could rub his big bald head all day long. He's rolled off the couch once and got his second head injury today when I fell in the church parking lot while holding him.  Seriously, what is wrong with me and why do I keep falling, especially at church?? It may have something to do with the 6 inch heels, I'm just saying...He is fine and no signs of brain damage yet.  He has a girlfriend.  It's the daycare worker at the gym, he gets all googly eyed whenever he sees her. He loves when Maddox and I sing him the good morning song everytime he wakes up, atleast he pretends to like it by kicking his legs and getting a huge grin on his face.  It makes my heart ache to think of the day when he's too old for me to rock him to sleep at night while he stares at me in the dark.  It's my favorite part of the day.

Another fall? I didn't hear about this one. At least you look hot in your heels. Totally worth a moment, or two, or three...of emberassment. Was there any indecent exposure included? If not, then you have nothing to be emberassed about:) Anyway, the baby. He is too cute! I just want to kiss on those sweet baby cheeks and lips and rub that bald head too. I'm glad your savoring all of his sweet baby-ness. Can you belive that I'm less then two months away from having a one year old? I think I'm not going to acknowledge his birthday. It will be like it never happened and he will just be my little baby forever! Why do they have to grow up?
